Why not let us All Bear our part of the Revenue. It is urged by the anti prohibition exponents that to abolish the Saloon would be to lose the Revenue to the state and county. We would ask who Page s this Revenue the answer conies Back Quot the Saloon Many. Well where does the Saloon Man get it. Ans. He gets it from the people who drink the whiskey. Now it does not seem fair to impose on one class for this heavy tax although we , it is exceeding kind and generous for them to insist on paying it while the rest of us go untaxed to this extent. Done to you think that equalization would suggest an adva Lorum that should Bear alike the expenses of the government. We insist that the generosity of those advocating this question is overtaxed and we want to help you. A what Good thing just one does the Saloon claim to do i do not have Refe Ance now to the Man who runs it but the institution of the Saloon is it a help to the work of Church does it carry out tie injunction of promoting Domestic happiness an i Tranqu Lity a vouchsafed to us id the preamble to the Constitution of the United states it is argued that p o libation will cause Trade to it ave a town and go to other towns where whiskey is sold. We Are trying to work up an educational in Hereford. Will a vote to retain the Saloon make any impression on the minds of those that Miget look in this direction for educational advantages would it Likely influence those that might make Hereford their Home this question of no Saloon is one that school people Are pushing hard As a special advantage of their locality and it is a Good claim too. You and i would prefer to locate among a people to educate our boys and girls whose Standard reached highe r than than voting to retain a drink shop in the Shadow of of school House or College. Granting the argument it is not e question of loss or gain As to what class of business shall we vote to retain the kind that demands the drink or the kind that demands the school but statistics from prohibition towns Confute the argument that Trade is driven to other towns by prohibitory measures. Judge l. Gough of the firm of Wither spoons amp Gough declares publicly that that their firm will not in the event of a prohibitory Victor defend any one charged with the violation of the local option Law in the other hand they will assist in the prosecution whenever called upon. Without some Home lawyer to assist Blind Tiger he would get very lonesome and probably tired of trying to violate the Law. The Twenty seventh legislature declares that where . Liquor packages Are delivered in a town the Sale of said liquor is considered made in that town and the shipper and express co in pan p thus delivering becoming parties to the Sale. The Breaks up the Quot Jug Quot business As Prentice in so Mary prohibition towns. When the Vialton of the local o Tion Low answers to the Bounty f r a charge of violation the prohibition Law to toe state tor Selling intoxicants without a License and to the Federal government for Selling without a Revenue License he Val Likely conclude that verily it is a weariness of the flesh to pay three lawyer fees for one violation of the Law and will conclude it were ?r to fortify against these by getting nto More congenial surroundings.
